All Sky Camera - Bourn, Cambs, UK

Last Hour Animation Loop


The above animation displays a loop of the last hour's worth of images from the mk2 high definition all sky camera. A new image is captured and added into the loop once a minute, constantly tracking the latest activity in the sky.

Due to bandwidth throttling on the uplink from the observatory (sorry, can't let you eat all my bandwidth!), the animation may a fair amount of time to load the initial hours worth of frames, but after this it should animate and update smoothly.

There is also a coarser grained animation available that contains a quarter of the number of frames to animate the last hour. This will be much faster to load for a quick view, displaying one frame per minute rather than one per 15 seconds for the hour.

See the All Sky Camera project page for additional details and access to the image archive.
